It’s the Sam Mendes production and is spectacular from the energy of the introduction to the chilling finale. Go see it.
A few things.
Lisa McCune is tragically miscast and proves a distraction every time she’s on stage. She has talent to spare but she’s not right for Sally Bowles.
Toby Allan is perfect as the Emcee. You sit waiting for him to come back on stage.
What’s up with the audience? Some laughed at the most dramatic moment of the entire show. Ignorance or discomfort? Who can tell.
The show oozes sex (note to self – come up with better description). Don’t miss the ‘performance’ that goes for the fifteen minutes before the show starts.
Say hi to Anton – he’s the bald guy in the orchestra – I went to uni with him.
Don’t get seats in the front row. You’ll see why.
